Courage

Each day brings opportunities

For growth

And often this requires

changing your perspective,

accepting your authentic self,

and pausing in stillness

for reflection.

Dear One, we have told you before what a courageous soul you are to have chosen this physical path for learning. Being embodied in a physical form rather than in your natural state as an energetic being brings with it many challenges on your path back to the Source.

Remember that you have much guidance and support from the unseen world. Your higher self is with you at all times. And the more you grow, the easier it is to strengthen your connection with your own essence of wisdom. Your journey is never a solo journey. It only appears that way while embodied on this physical plane.

As you continue down your path, there will be times to reach down and engage with the courage which lies within you. For following the same routine, the same mindset daily requires little from you. However, if you choose to view your life from a different perspective, to lovingly accept yourself with all your perceived flaws, and to be open to listening to another’s point of view; these are the times when courage is needed.

You, Dear One, are presented with opportunities each day to expand your consciousness a little wider. To see, to view, to hear without judgement, what the world around you is showing you. Acceptance of these offerings may not occur for you. But reflection may offer you another way to move forward on your path.

Do not immediately shut down when given a point of view opposite of yours. For often these interactions are opportunities to change your perspective and see in a way you never considered in the past. Often upon reflection, compassion may result, as you attempt to step into the shoes of another.

All of this requires courage. Courage to accept that there is another way, another viewpoint, different from your own. Reflection upon long-standing beliefs seen from another perspective may require you to walk through your fears. Fears of change, fears of being wrong, fears of missed opportunities due to a blind spot in your sight.

Dear One, all of these are just steps upon your path back to wholeness, back to connection with your true self. Ego has its purpose for being, but it can hold you captive in fear of being your authentic self, of accepting that change is possible and necessary.

You are loved beyond measure and are gently led forward through this maze of challenges to provide you more self-awareness and personal growth. Can you bring up that inner courage to pause and reflect? To accept yourself with all of your perceived flaws? For what you still do not realize is how those perceived flaws are truly gifts. When used in the right circumstances with pure intent, those ‘flaws’ can be strengths.

Accept yourself fully as you truly are. But also allow yourself times of stillness to reflect upon another way of seeing yourself and your world. Have the courage to be open to change. Be discerning, of course, but trust that the wisdom lies within, in tandem with the courage needed.

Listen, and if does not ring true for you, then discard what you have been given. But only after you have allowed yourself the time to reflect on the content. Ask for help from the unseen world and you shall be guided forward. Synchronistic events will occur to help lead you forward.

The final decision is yours, Dear One. For you have been given free-will to proceed on your journey as you wish. Know you are loved, beyond measure. You are a divine being on a physical journey. And you are held in highest regard for choosing this journey.

You shine so brightly from the light within.

Kaleidoscope colors swirling

With power, courage and love.

You are so much greater, wiser, courageous

That you can accept.

Accept this loving message

And move forward with grace.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

This Moment in Time

this moment in time

Chakra Heart Primalpainter.com

How do you feel at this very moment?

Are you happy, sad, neutral?

Can you give attention to what you are feeling

At this very moment in time?

Can you bless that feeling with the knowledge

That it will soon change

To another emotion, another feeling,

As you move through this day.

Dear One, there is a duality here upon this plane, purposefully designed to give you the optimal environment for growth. The human body is filled with emotion, some described as positive while other emotions are deemed negative. But do they all not have the same purpose in your life; to move you forward on your path?

Even the greatest teachers of your time have felt a plethora of emotion, ranging from ecstasy to despair. Your life is a kaleidoscope of emotions, each with a different frequency of vibration. And indeed, if you could see the colors emitted you would see a rainbow of colors swirling around you. For some of these emotions bring with them a chaotic energy which can cause you to be out of balance.

What to do? Accept what it is that you are feeling. Pause and take note of it and allow it to work through your body. Breathe as calmly as you are able and ask it why it is here with you at this moment in time. Give gratitude for the message that it brings to you, for it does have a purpose for being present at this time.

If it is an emotion that has been suppressed for a long time, perhaps now is the time to move forward and allow it to emerge, providing the release needed for you to continue on your path. You have grown since the event that caused that emotion and may now have the strength to review and release what has been buried for so long.

If it has been a constant companion for you, perhaps it is now time to seek help. Time to allow yourself to heal, physically or emotionally, for your entire being is affected by the vibration caused by what you are feeling.

If there is celebration to be experienced, then do so with full abandon and honor the lightness that surrounds you. Share it with others and give gratitude for the joy you feel at this moment.

Dear One, rather than trying to suppress any emotion, instead sit with it and try to see what it is telling you. It may be as simple as the need to feed your physical body. It may be telling you that it is time to get involved to help change the world, in any way you can help. Or it may be telling you that your body needs rest. You have done enough for this day.

Your intuition will help you as you move through these different states of mind. But in order for it to do so, it is necessary for you to acknowledge how it is that you are feeling. If you are sensitive to the energies of others around you, find a quiet space to replenish and ground yourself. Mother Nature will gladly show you relief. You are loved, Dear One, and have an abundance of help waiting for you to ask for assistance.

Emotions are a driving force to help you move forward on your path. Honor them for how they can teach you. Life here upon this plane can easily encourage you to over-commit, to ignore what your intuition is trying to tell you or to just push back that what is trying to help you move forward.

This moment is time is different from the previous moment and from the next moment to occur. For there is always the potential for change, acceptance, forgiveness and gratitude. Every one who is embodied at this time has struggled with raw emotion. And for those who are sensitive, you feel the emotions of others as well as your own.

Acknowledge and respond to what you are feeling. What is needed may be as simple as taking a breath and walking in nature. Or it may require taking action over a longer time period, for yourself or for others.

There is purpose in what you feel

It is a gift for you

To better understand yourself

And where you are on your path.

Have enough compassion for yourself,

To listen to what you are being told.

And always know that there is help

Just a breath away.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Embrace Your Life

There is a richness

To the human experience

Unknown on any other realm.

Embrace your life

And the knowledge it brings to you

And to the All.

Dear One, the opportunities for growth which you experience here upon this plane are unique and unknown anywhere else in the Universe. This is one reason why you chose the human condition, despite all of its challenges and limitations. For these are what help you to growth, to expand, beyond that which you brought with you as you entered this realm.

Do not hide behind the curtain which you have placed around you for protection, for Dear One, you are greater than that. You are more powerful than you realize and it is time for you to spread your wings. Allow them to unfurl, for they have been sequestered long enough. Allow them to unfurl and rise to the heights you are capable of reaching. No longer let that voice in your head hold you back. It is time to soar.

Each and every one of you has the capacity within you to rise to your fullest potential here upon this plane. As the veil between worlds has thinned, you have had glimpses of what is possible. And yet, many of you discount what you see, what you feel, what you hear, as an anomaly, a quirk of nature. When in fact, Dear One, this is a gateway to discovering your true nature beyond the limitations of the human existence.

Open yourself up to new experiences, take a chance and embrace what comes to you. Embrace those who enter your life and begin to exchange the knowledge each of you has to share. Do not discount anyone as a teacher, for all who cross your path have something to teach you. As well, you have something to teach them, not consciously, but your soul remembers and will allow that transfer to occur.

The time is now for your behavior to change. Be bold, be confident that you can handle whatever, whoever, comes your way. We are behind you. Dear One, the Entirety of Being is behind you, encouraging you onward for the growth of the All. You are in a unique position to contribute to the expansion of the Universe in a way only possible from this physical plane.

You have been given time to test the waters, to trust yourself and your life as best as you could up until this point. But the time has arrived for you to take that deep breath and jump into the life you were meant to live. Worry not, for there is always a safety net below you as you lift off for destinations previously unknown to you. It is time, Dear One. No longer crawl, no longer walk, but fly. Soar high above the perceived limitations you have chosen to believe up until this point. Allow them to drop away and see how much higher you soar as your load is lightened.

This world is a teaching ground, a learning ground, for only those courageous enough to take the journey. And you are one of the courageous ones to have chosen this path. It is time, Dear One. Fill your heart, your mind, your body with the armor of love, for that is all you need to move forward. Trust in yourself, for you are such a wondrous being. Spread the seeds of love as you soar over this world. Extend your hand to others still too timid to take that leap of faith.

Linger no longer. Lick your wounds no longer, for it is through them that your light shines in all of its brilliance. They have filled your coffers with experience which will allow you to show compassion for others who have not yet seen their own light reflected back to them in the mirror.

Go out into your world and embrace your life. It is time. Be at peace with how far you have come. And if you still do not see your progress, spend time reflecting on your life, the lessons learned and the reserve of knowledge those lessons brought to your consciousness.

Dear One, this strength, this power, has been there all along, within you, waiting for the call to burst forth and to reveal to you the true depth of your being. Your connection to the All is strong, has always been strong. You have known this since your birth, somewhere deep within your being. But the time is now for that knowledge to surface so that you can continue your journey with confidence and strength.

Know the joy of being who you truly are.

Understand the potential provided by this physical existence.

Share the knowledge you have with others

And accept what they have to offer you in return.

You are not an island

But an integral piece of a universal tapestry of love.

You ARE love incarnate.

Embrace that love and share it with others.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Uncertainty and Self Doubt

uncertainty

eBay.co.uk

Do you wait for complete certainty

Before you act or speak?

Upon reflection, do you question

if you did or said the right thing?

Is absolute certainty necessary for forward movement?

Dear One, this physical plane is a ground for learning and self-discovery. You came here to learn how to be in a world entirely different from where you came. Instead of an atmosphere of unconditional love, you are finding your way in a world of dualities, where your inner-connectedness is more difficult to see.

Moving forward can be difficult when you are not sure if the next step you take is the right step; if you are not sure if the actions you already took were the best choices. Indecision can prevent you from taking any action at all. Self-doubt can cause regret and uncertainty of events past.

Understand that any new situation is providing you an opportunity for growth. When you stay within the circle of familiarity, you are operating out of habit. In fact, you may not even be conscious of certain actions. You need not engage because you have done the same thing so often before.

Think of how often you travel to a familiar destination and once there have no memory of the journey. Since you have done this so many times before, your mind, your thoughts, can be miles away, in the future or in the past, anywhere but in the present moment. And yet you arrive safely.

For this reason, changing your routine, stepping outside of your comfort zone, is necessary for growth. Be it a new environment, new acquaintances, or a new way of moving through familiar territory, all of these are conditions for growth. Do you chastise a young child for exploring new avenues, stretching their physical limits, or exploring new ways of expressing themselves?

A child does not wait for a time of complete certainty nor does she reflect upon actions with self-doubt. Quite the opposite, she is excited to be exploring the possibilities for new ways of being. But, you say, this child needs to learn to be cautious to avoid injury or hurt. And so, you keep a watchful eye to assure safety during her self-exploration.

How is that child different from you? Are you not a child of the Universe? Are you not surrounded by loving guides who are here to help guide you as you move forward? Can you move forward with more faith, in yourself and your connection to the All; with faith in the guidance you receive every moment of your day?

There can be no mistakes made here upon this plane. There are only opportunities for growth. And often the lesson is one of forgiveness, humility or non-judgment. These are lessons many of you came here to learn. Or perhaps the lesson is one of self-love, empowerment or neutrality. Any potential lesson will be difficult to learn if you hesitate to act without perfection; seeking it in yourself or others. If this physical plane offered perfection it would not be the wondrous place of learning that it is.

You might try on a different way of being and realize that it is not the right way to be. Lesson learned.  You might take a chance and speak out in a way you never have before and be amazed at the results. Lesson learned. Or you might approach another who you perceive as much different from yourself and realize the similarities in your lives. Lesson learned.

Dear One, do not hide behind a façade of familiarity and safety. Where is the growth in living a life of repetition and hesitation? Have faith in yourself and in your guides who are with you at all times. Spend quiet time with them so that you can begin to better trust the connections you have with the All.

Act with pure intent. And in times of reflection, think of the lessons provided to you over the course of your day. The moment of absolute certainty about a particular decision may never come. But you can still make a choice and embrace the lesson it provides you.

There are no wrong paths, for all paths move you forward and back to the Source. All paths.

Be like that child on a journey of adventure and self-exploration and stretch. And whatever the lessons learned, be they lessons of humility, forgiveness or self-empowerment, offer gratitude for them. And continue forward.

Be bold, be the courageous soul that you are.

Trust that we are here with you always.

And call upon us, for we are here to help and guide you.

Dear One, Dear One With All of Thee.

 

 

Acceptance

Can you stop resisting the flow of your life

And have faith that all is unfolding as it should

With hidden miracles tucked within those challenges

Dear One, there is so much more to your existence than what you perceive with your human senses. There is a Universe out there to which you are connected. There are machinations of connection at work which involve your life and all of creation.

Can you find the peace of mind that is within your being and accept that all is well? Can you believe, truly believe, that you are wrapped in a loving embrace which supports your every step forward on your path? Can you give gratitude for your life instead of allowing fear to inculcate into your very being?

If you were to see the infinite web of connection you would stand in awe of the majesty of creation. You would see flashes of light moving down each filament that connects one to another to the All. And you would begin to see how one action affects another which affects another and so on.

You would also realize that you indeed are an integral part of this mosaic of life, this beautiful tapestry of connection that envelops the entire cosmos of being. No action of yours or anyone else is an isolated occurrence. Each action, thought, word affects the All in this giant web of being.

If you could look down upon your life with our perspective, you would understand why a situation arose and how it moved you and others forward on their paths. You have not been forgotten or left astray on an isolated island in this sea of being.

Quite the contrary, you are at the center of the Universe, helping to move it forward as it continues to learn through your experiences here upon this physical plane. Once again, we tell you how you are a brave adventurer who willingly took on this physical life to learn, to teach, to help to expand the Universe.

Dear One, hold your head up high, open your heart to all and allow those fearful thoughts to leave. For this fear that you feel lowers your vibration and creates the illusion of separation, abandonment and unworthiness. Illusions, indeed, for nothing could be further from the truth.

You have much power, much love, much courage and much support every moment of your day. We understand from your experiences how difficult it can be to navigate this physical world. But remember that it is all an illusion, created as a learning ground for you and through you, for all of creation.

Breathe in the love that surrounds you and feel the peace embracing your thoughts and your physical body. Breathe out the fear and allow it to dissipate into nothingness. Can you allow the internal stress that you feel to melt away in the radiance of your internal flame, ever present and gaining in strength daily, despite what you may think?

Take a walk in nature. Allow the antics of the innocent to bring you joy. Listen to the sounds of nature’s song as she sings to you, her charge, her babe. For she only has love for you. She is created in love, just as you have been.

Can you live in the moment? For remember that past and future only exist in your mind. And in this moment, in this very moment, are you not breathing and experiencing life in a peaceful moment as you read these words?

Spend time with us in meditation daily. This is how you can better connect with who you really are. This is how you can build your trust in your own inner voice, your intuition, your connection to the Source. If you can allow just a few moments out of your daily routine to sit, breathe and feel the inner stillness; if you can do this you will begin to notice a change in your life.

Are you not worthy of this daily time of peace and stillness, if only for a moment? Your higher self calls to you, speaks to you throughout your day. But it is in the stillness that you can best hear your inner voice.

Heed the call. Stop and breathe and listen.

Listen to the peace, the stillness and to your higher self.

It calls to you. It is always there. You have not been forgotten.

It is you who have forgotten who you are.

Remember once again with peace in your heart.

Joyous singing abounds.

Love embraces you.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Be of Joy

Did you laugh today?

Did you sing today?

Did you dance today?

Dear One, this journey on the physical plane has many opportunities for joy. Yes, it was intended as a learning ground. But it also was intended as a source of joy, pure and utter joy. When was the last time you experienced that feeling?

We understand that the challenges of the human condition can be overwhelming at times and cause of anxiety and worry. But we ask you, how much of that anxiety and worry is caused by your actual situation and how much is caused by your perception of your situation?

Your life here upon this plane is one of adventure. For some, that does mean taking physical risks. But emotional risks can be just as much of an adventure. In fact, they can require more courage than any physical situations you might place yourself in for the sheer adrenaline rush that pulses through your body.

Perhaps the difference is that in physical risks you feel that you have a greater amount of control involving timing, resources and sheer willpower. The challenge might be considered to be between you and the Mother. Be it weather, terrain or physical stamina required. The strength of the mind appears to bring you success or failure.

In taking emotional risks, you may find yourself more vulnerable in ways of the heart. There is no protective covering that you might wear to lessen the blow. Old wounds may be buried so deep that you are unaware of their existence. There is not a bandage or stitch that can help in the healing process.

But if you can move forward knowing that joy is possible in every move you make, would that not lessen your anxiety? If you allowed yourself to laugh, to sing, to dance every day, if just for a moment, would that not change the vibration of energies within and around you?

Dear One, self-discovery awaits you around the next bend as you set off on these emotional adventures. Personal growth brings much more strength than physical training. Seeing the potential for joy, for creativity, for laughter in all situations can change how you approach your life. Know that lightness of heart can heal any situation.

Do not take yourself so seriously that you are unable to step back and see the humor in your situation. Are you able to laugh at yourself rather than judge yourself so harshly? Can you create a playful moment out of a perceived failure? Ask yourself how much does this outcome really matter to you. Much of the tension comes from a lack of trust that your life is unfolding exactly as it should for the lessons you chose to learn this lifetime.

Will you move forward on this experiential journey with a stern brow, squared shoulders and tense muscles waiting to conquer all? Or will you lighten your step, trusting that whatever occurs, you will have learned a valuable lesson? Or perhaps you will have taught another the lesson they wanted to learn on this journey.

Dear One, it is your choice how you move through your day. Can you stop and breathe deeply, look around and see the pleasures of life only a physical existence can provide? Can you skip rather than trod, sing rather than complain and dance to the music that plays for you throughout nature. It just requires you to stop to hear it. It plays for you.

Whatever happens in this life, you will always return to our loving arms, as we are anxious to see you at the end of this journey. The lessons are there for you for self-discovery. Can you change your perspective, lighten your step and allow yourself to play more as a child plays?

For are you not a child in this experiential journey of life?

Are you not lovingly watched from above by those eager to help if you ask?

Dear One, know more joy than fear.

Find the courage to dance, to sing, to laugh, regardless of the situation.

For you have the strength, the support, that comes with your connection to the Divine.

Be at peace.

Laugh out loud this day and smile. And see how the energy shifts around you.

 

Towards light and love and joy.

 

Why Do I Feel This Way?

Why the self-doubt?

Why the insecurities?

If I am such a brilliant flame

Why do I feel this way?

Dear One, your time here upon this plane is an experiential existence. This means that you will feel a range of emotions from pure and utter joy to despair. The lesson for you is to change the way you see the world, from one of disappointments to one of possibilities.

You, you ARE a brilliant source of light that always shines brightly even though you may not feel this at all times. You are connected to the All and have our support, our love, our gratitude for choosing to come here.

Now at this time when the vibrational changes are occurring upon this plane, unresolved feelings may surface in order for you to see them clearly and work through them. Many of these feelings are from your past, experienced at a time when you were younger, more naïve, nascent in your growth and understanding of the world.

But your cellular memory has held onto these feelings in spite of how far you have come since they first emerged. Can you now, from your wiser perspective, your more experienced line of vision, from you higher vibration allow these feelings to surface and view them more objectively?

Wrap yourself in love, acknowledge how much you have grown and ask yourself if these feelings truly reflect your life at this moment? If it is helpful to you, compile a list of all that you have done in your lifetime, how many people you have touched, how much adversity you have overcome to reach your current state of being.

Dear one, these old wounds no longer serve you. This story which you continue to tell yourself is no longer valid. You are stronger, wiser, and less judgmental than you were in the past. Do not judge yourself or your life from an ancient perspective that is no longer appropriate.

Allow your true self, your higher self, to guide you at this time. Do not make comparisons between yourself and another. For in truth, that other person may be looking back at you with their own insecurities, looking to you as a role model.

Instead help each other. Reach out to each other. Love each other and love yourself. Celebrate your accomplishments. Celebrate who you are and all the joyful moments in your life. And open your eyes to the beauty, the joy, the love which surrounds you at this very moment.

Be mindful of your life and all it has to share with you; the tastes, the sounds, the sights, the tactile pleasures, the fragrances that bring you joy.

We surround you with our love and our support. Especially at this time of transformation upon your plane. In order to raise your own vibration, these old insecurities will arise so that you can view them, bless them, and release them.

For you are truly cherished. Your life has made a difference and you have touched so many with your love. Take a moment and embrace who you are in this moment. And know, Dear One, that you will only grow stronger, wiser and more loving with each passing moment.

Dear, dear One with All of Thee.

Reach up and touch the stars, for they are reflecting back to you your own light.

Open your heart and sing your song, dance your dance and live your life.

With grace and with love.
